    Breakfast, omelettes, coffee!

    Pretty good for an airport. The Croque Madame was delicious.

    Anna Kristina S. · August 18
  • Edward F.

    Tasty Monte Cristo

    Edward Forte · May 27
  • Nick P.

    The breakfast sandwich and the coffee are both solid.

    Surprisingly well presented food that's not bad... considering

    Akshay Patil · August 25, 2014

    what's good here, you ask? not much. don't waste your time. premade food that's cold when it gets to you, mystery meat and rock hard biscuits. sad to see pleasant, competent waitstaff go to waste.

    Sever "RJ" is amazing and with a smile!! Whatever they pay him isn't enough!

    Awesome food. WAY better than your typical airport place. Check out onion soup and niçoise baguette sandwich.

  • Jessica P.

    Another solid terminal 5 option. Coffee here.

    Jessica P · January 14, 2014
  • Giselle V.

    The salmon is very good. Delicious for airport standards!

    Giselle Valdez · December 21, 2013
  • Bruno Z.

    Atypical airport bistro that doesn't feel or taste terminalèsque at all. A Croque-Madame and a Chardonnay will make you feel you accidentally boarded on Air France and landed in Paris. C'est la vie!

    A hidden gem by airport standards. Illy coffee & proper breakfast food.

    Ece · April 19, 2013
  • Cezary P.

    this place really went down the tubes recently. mediocre food, ketchup in a plastic cup and a plastic knife to go with a regular fork. terrible.

    Cezary Pietrzak · January 26, 2013

    Chicken paillard is good. Ask for salad with half the dressing or on the side--it comes heavily dressed.

    Alyssa · January 23, 2013
  • Rakesh N.

    Ask for less dressing on the frisée. With the egg, dressing isn't required

    Rakesh Nigam · January 3, 2013

    Jeff is seriously "da bomb"! Best bartender at an airport ever.

    Squeaky Toy · September 30, 2012
  • Nicole D.

    I try to fly Jet Blue just so I can eat and drink here. The Croque Madame is the best anywhere. Drinks are decent though the booze selection is somewhat lacking. I concur with Maille, Jeff is da bomb!

    Nicole Desmond · July 24, 2012
  • Mailliw N.

    This place has the beat bar man in New York City. Take a bow Jeff. Also does pretty decent food.

    Mailliw Nosnikrap · June 26, 2012
  • Brian P.

    Waitstaff is incredibly friendly, prices are comparable to NYC restaurants, I overheard several people say the coffee was delicious, and a great place to make you feel like you're not at the airport.

    Brian Pelayo · June 19, 2012
  • Paul J.

    The Croquet Madam is great!!!

    Paul Johnson · June 1, 2012
  • Squeaky T.

    Last chance for French bistro before you fly to buffalo purgatory. To weep.

    Squeaky Toy · May 29, 2012
  • Jenny R.

    If you want a drink in the jetBlue terminal, this is your best bet.

    Jenny Rose · March 27, 2012
  • Steve G.

    Ahi tuna salad was fresh and delicious. Staff was friendly and polite. Recommend!

    Steve G · February 11, 2012
  • Jake B.

    Check out Winter Wipeout after 8 on ABC. Also, Thursdays has the best hostess ever.

    Jake Baker · February 10, 2012
  • Nicole D.

    The Croque Madame is to die for!!!!

    Nicole Desmond · October 20, 2011
  • Harry H.

    Similar menu to the fancier Resto nearby, but mostly cheaper by a few dollars a dish.

    Harry Hawk · October 3, 2011
  • Jessica T.

    I can never resist a sancerre and a croque madame here!! Even though it costs a small fortune

    Jessica T · September 30, 2011
  • Aaron C.

    Feels like ur in Paris

    Aaron Cohen · September 26, 2011
  • Kyle C.

    Order wine by the bottle...JetBlue will let you bring whatever's left onto your flight.

    Kyle Crafton · July 28, 2011
  • Leslie C.

    The Croque Monsieur did not impress. Also note the order of fries is big enough for 2-3.

    Leslie Campisi · July 8, 2011
  • Lori R.

    If you like bacon, it is worth taking a flight to JFK just to have the frisee salad.

    Lori Roberts · June 11, 2011
  • The Corcoran Group

    Like a smaller Balthazar (they’re owned by the same people). Try the Steak Sandwich, The Salade Nicoise or the Sauteed Prawn Provencal.

    The Corcoran Group · June 7, 2011
  • F'd In Park Slope

    Salad Nicoise is divine.

    F'd In Park Slope · May 10, 2011

    Stellar French Toast. Friendly counter staff. The food comes from a kitchen is across the way. Espresso is great too. All around a great find.

    Pamela · November 9, 2010
  • Gahlord D.

    Breakfast. Illy coffee (AM only). Espresso (all day). Ask for jam with your toast.

    Gahlord Dewald · October 13, 2010
